Whilst there are very few of us who wouldn’t want a truly Flawless diamond, the truth of the matter is that only a small percentage of very fortunate people can afford them. In actual fact, however, once a diamond is set in a ring, one cannot tell the difference between a diamond that has Flawless, Internally Flawless, VVS1, VVS2, VS1, VS2, and SI1 clarity characteristics using the naked eye. To discern any quality improvement between these grades would take 10x magnification (using a loupe or microscope). At Diamond Boutique we only carry diamonds which have been graded as SI1+. We also believe that the unique clarity characteristics of each diamond are akin to the diamond’s fingerprint, and are therefore something to be celebrated.
